Event Description:
Sept-Dec. were hard months for our friends at The Winchester. Despite turning the restaurant around during the hardest restaurant months of the year they are still struggling to recover from Sept - Dec.From The Winchester, "The problem is, once in the hole it is hard to get out of it. I hate to ask for help but if I don't I am afraid the restaurant will close and my staff will lose their jobs. I have yet to take a check and will not until this place makes a profit.We built a great place where we showcase local musicians and artist and serve quality food and great craft beers. Help keep us open for another year."

What can you do? You can visit The Winchester this week and weekend and show them some love buy enjoying some great local brews and some food there. Please let them know the CT Beer Trail sent you and please help them get past this difficult time.

Some local musicians are pitching in to host a benefit at The Winchester on Saturday, here's the details straight for the horses mouth...

"Hey everyone, In case you haven't heard, The Winchester in Woodbridge is in danger of having to close it's doors. The Winchester is a great place with delicious food, a wonderful beer selection & the owner is a great supporter of local musicians & artists. We are trying to help them out with a benefit show. Our plan is to have a full day of music, starting around 2 pm & ending at closing time (2 am). We'll be announcing bands & schedule throughout the week this week. Please come by & enjoy a day of music with us at this great place. There is a $15 suggested donation, but if you can't swing $15, every little amount helps. Hope you can all stop by at some point throughout the day(& if you're a musician interested in donating your time & playing that day, get in touch with us please!). Please share this too. Thanks everyone!"
